Message Of Keith Brinton From Diamond Heads

“Cyril. Here at Diamond Heads we have been receiving numorous phone calls from companies and individuals wanting to know if the rumor of Amber’s passing is true and if we are going to remain in business. As you know the rumor of her passing is true we were hit from behind by a speeding suv while stopping at a light. That person never hits the brakes.I was hurt very seriously and now have a plate holding my collar bone together and may be having another hip surgery as a result of this accident but physically I am going to be fine. Her passing has been very difficult for me personally. We had been married for 32 years and together 37 years. Amber was my business partner as well as best friend and wife.

As for the other part of this rumor that is totally false we are conducting business as ussual. The heads and cylinders are coming in and going back out with our beautiful process applied in 5-7 business days. Amber was a big part of Diamond Heads and will be greatly missed by all who work here. I am not sure if you knew this but we are a family owned and operated company but Amber was one of ten here at Diamond Heads and although her passing has created more work for those of us here we have all pulled together to pick up the gap left by her untimely death. We are a strong family and will continue living the dream that Amber helped us build.

I would really appreciate if you could let your readers know that things are going well even thou Amber’s passing has left a huge hole in all our heart. We are continuing to manufacture parts and cutting Heads and cylinders for our many clients. And I look forward to seeing all of you at Sturgis we will be at our usual location in Rapid City at Black Hills Harley Davidson. Thank You” Keith Brinton, Diamond Heads.

    I spent quite some time this year at Cincy speaking with you and your beautiful wife about how long you had been married as I was telling you both about being married to my wife for 18 years (our anniversary was 4/2). I was never so happy for the little things in life that are so often taken for granted when I heard that news. Those fleeting moments really add to my perspective of what is important when bad things happen. I am glad that you are pressing ahead, I am certain that your partner would want you to do that. We love your product and will continue to do business when ever we can. God bless your family and I am glad that you will be okay.

    Keith, I am so sorry to hear of that tragedy and I wish you a speedy recovery, to better than new. I do know what it is to experience the loss that you have. I just lost my Partner and also the Mother of 3 Kids and 5 Dogs. All left behind. She asked me one time out of know where, “what would you do If I died”? I thought for a short while and was thinking of something romantic and something spiritual and I finally came up with a very whimpy “I would not know what to do without you”! She looked at me and she said the answer is to carry on. Attend to Business as usual and take care of the Kids and Dogs and all ” As Usual” !

    Keith, I want you to know Amber was my best friend in our industry and I haven’t had a chance to talk to you but seeing her & visiting at the rally’s was the best part of the trip. Amber & I had so much in common, being partners with our husbands in a family business, working with our kids & the most important thing….being a grandmother! I’m going to miss her so much. You are truly blessed to have your kids to help you carry on & to have had the most caring loving wife & partner for all those years. We wish you all the best with your recovery.
